Join Philly Career Launch for Our Career Exploration Workshops

By Annette M. RSS Mon, April 1, 2024

Philly Career Launch Career Exploration Workshop sessions will take place this April, May, and June at various Free Library locations and community sites throughout Philadelphia.

Have you experienced job disruption over the past few years? Are you feeling stuck in a low-paying job or want a new or better employment situation? Here’s your chance to take hold of your future. Join us for a Philly Career Launch Career Exploration Workshop. Explore careers that build on your strengths and interests and get hands-on experience with online resources. 

Do you like working with your hands and are you a visual thinker? Then a career in construction, skilled trades, or manufacturing might be for you. Or maybe you describe yourself as a compassionate and caring person who is detail-oriented, in which case you could consider a healthcare career. Like to play video games? You wouldn’t be the first gamer to go into coding! There are thousands of careers out there and the Career Exploration Workshops will help you get your new career off the ground. These unique sessions combine self-reflection, small group discussion, and information sharing.

The Philly Career Launch Career Exploration Workshop is free! A boxed lunch will be provided. Register online and choose from one of the 10 sessions listed below:
